MLB: New York Yankees vs. Tampa Bay Rays

The New York Yankees begin a 3-game set against the Tampa Bay Rays.

These teams are at the top of the American League East, with the Rays leading the division.  Both teams are doing better than expected, most baseball experts did not expect the Rays to be in first place.  They are doing it, thanks to their pitching, the team era is under 3 runs.  Tyler Glasnow is making an early case as a favorite to win the American League Cy Young Award.

The Yankees at the same time are doing pretty well, playing consistent baseball, without half of their roster.  Many of the Bombers are on the Injured List, including Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton.  With the absence of their stars, Gleyber Torres, Luke Voit, DJ Lemahieu and Gary Sanchez have been holding the hitting line-up together.

This series begins this Friday at 7:10 pm at Tropicana Field, in St. Petersburg, Florida.
